i don't think that it's this year's calendar
I am also not sure but let's see... From the picture, we need the following conditions in order for the two dates to coincide:

1. There is no square to the right of the date. So as per ricoflex's calendar, the two days (Yuan Xiao and V-Day) has to fall on a Saturday.

2. This means that the first day of CNY has to be on a Friday, 31 Jan.

According to http://www.chinesenewyears.info/chinese-new-year-calendar.php the previous years where the first day of CNY was on 31 Jan were:

31 Jan 1995 - Tuesday

31 Jan 1976 - Saturday

31 Jan 1957 - Thursday

31 Jan 1938 - Monday

No other dates fulfill the constraints between 1930-2030.

(I used http://earthonly.com/tools/weekday.php to get the day of week of the above dates.)

Of course, the calendar itself could be faked or faked words were put in.

Notice the date 14 is highlighted in red? So it could mean that he date shown in the photo is on a Sunday. And that could mean that this calendar could be for 1976.

Then why Chu Ba above it in black?
